FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Yes, we are a Telehealth psychology clinic. Telehealth means that we provide remote, online psychological services, allowing you to access our support and expertise from the comfort of your own home. Through secure video conferencing and other digital tools, we offer confidential, effective, and convenient mental health care to individuals regardless of their location.
All sessions are done via telehealth using Zoom.

The assessment process typically spans approximately six weeks and includes:

  1. An Intake Appointment
  2. A Telehealth Assessment
  3. A Feedback Appointment
Teacher input is generally not necessary for these assessments. However, the psychologist may request consent from the guardian to contact the school during the assessment process to provide additional information.
Yes, the psychologist will need to gather background information and meet the child and guardian. The psychologist needs to speak to the guardian without the child and supervision arrangements may need to be made.
Sometimes, depending on the results and the psychologist's assessment plan, your child's presence may be requested during the feedback session. The psychologist will inform you about the necessity of your child's attendance when you schedule the feedback session.
Yes, we will post you response booklets in a sealed envelope. Do not open the envelope until the psychologist asks you to at the time of the session.
You can expect to receive your results during the feedback session, which generally takes place eight weeks after the initial appointment. This timeframe allows our psychologists to prepare a comprehensive report that covers all aspects of the assessment. During the feedback session, the psychologist will review the report, discuss the profile of strengths and difficulties, provide recommendations, and address any questions you may have.

If you are a current participant of the NDIS, they will assess each individual on a case-by-case basis. Please refer to our NDIS section for further information.

Depending on your coverage, you may be able to claim the assessment (or a portion of it) through your private health insurance. Please check with your provider for more details.
While it is not required, you are welcome to ask any questions you may have. The psychologist is available to address your concerns and provide clarification as needed.
During the intake session, the psychologist will ask a range of questions related to the child's background, developmental history, overall well-being, and functioning in various areas of life.
It would be helpful to send any previous assessments or reports, correspondence from schools or paediatricians, or any other relevant documentation that may be related to the assessment process. This information can provide valuable insights for the psychologist.
